What do you do to stay motivated?

Today was one of those days where it was particularly hard to motivate myself.  I love my job and I really enjoy my horse...  But there's the odd day when I'd really much rather stay in bed.  And today was definitely one of them.  I seriously considered resetting the alarm and going back to sleep and not getting to the barn till it was time to teach.

But then I considered all the clinics coming up in the spring and the fact that I *really* want to show this summer and that got me out of bed and to the barn.  After all, I won't be able to compete if my horse isn't ridable...  And the only way she'll become ridable is if I actually *ride* >;-P   And she was really good.  It was one of those days where I actually felt I could see some sort of progress.  Kinda made it worth getting up :)   Now XC season needs to arrive soon!  What do you do to stay motivated in the cold miserable weather...?   Esp if you're working with a young horse where your sessions are short and, on a good day, boring?

And in your product check moment -- last week my photos all disappeared from my camera.  I clicked "move" to transfer them from camera to PC and while they left the camera they did not make it to the PC *sigh*  Not in the recycle bin, not on the camera, nowhere to be seen...   So I googled and the first product that seemed highly recommended I tried.  It found all the files, said they were viable, and yet when I transferred them none of them worked.  Boooo.   So a sister product to this one exists and was even more highly recommend.  I tried it -- and it didn't even install properly.  Frig.  When Google didn't give me a fix in 30 seconds or left, I abandoned that effort.  The next two I tried installed correctly but couldn't find any files...   Although since the very first one had, I still had hope.   Then I found one that not only found the files, it showed me previews of them!  Woohoo.  And *that* one was able to rescue about 90% of them.  Woohoo!  So if you need to rescue your photos from the void, check out Recuva.  It's free and it works. You're welcome :)

As for the photos?  They were of Louis, Jack and Sasha playing.  So much fun :)
